Task management with Markdown, calendar and notes.

Overview

NotePlan is designed to make your task planning more productive. It solves problems like bloated, ever-growing to-do lists.

  • Modern Writing - Enjoy a full writing area with Markdown and injected flavour for productivity.
  • Calendar Notes - A calendar shows you where the action is. Jump right into a day to manage it by writing notes into each day.
  • Backlog Notes - Save away your backlogs and general notes behind the daily planning and apart from the calendar.
Features
  • Full, modern writing tool included for every day of a month - NotePlan will give you the convenience of a modern writing editor supporting markdown. Add formatting to your task lists and notes to keep it better organized.
  • Monthly calendar overview with color-coded daily note content - See a summary of your notes and color coded lists in a monthly calendar view. Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate and quickly jump into a day to review or edit it. The calendar will also show you, if you missed out on some tasks, so nothing important slips from your mind.
  • Schedule tasks to stay organized - If you couldn't finish a task, don't leave it unmanaged on the list. Re-schedule it to another day. Or, if you manage a backlog, schedule a todo directly from there onto your calendar.
  • Backlogs, drafts, bug lists or just text notes, apart from the calendar - Some information is not related to a day and should be kept separated from the calendar. Like bug lists or project backlogs. They can be managed in NotePlan and scheduled directly into the calendar, when required. Notes can be organized by tagging them. In the overview you can filter your notes by tags.
  • Your notes are not saved on our servers. You will find them safe and sound in your iCloud Drive.
  • Integrations to useful apps like iCalender, Reminders, and more are available.

What's new in NotePlan

Version 2.0.17:
  • NEW: Global search for both, calendar and non-calendar notes. Means you find everything in a single search.
  • NEW: Preference to disable the markdown link conversion if you copy an URL. See "Edit" - "Substitutions" - "Smart Markdown Links".
  • FIXED: Dropbox sync caused the user interface to hang repeatedly.
  • FIXED: Printouts had too much space below events when there are just a few todos.
  • CHANGED: Text and quote icons removed in search, because there were just confusing.

Requirements for NotePlan

  • Intel 64
  • macOS 10.12.0 or later

I've had NotePlan for my Mac and iPhone since the betas. I use it in conjunction with Things 3. The beauty of NotePlan for me is that it allows me to break down tasks for projects quite easily, and then work through them on a calendar-ToDo list. I could do this with Things or OmniFocus, but I like how NotePlan allows me to delineate my tasks within a project without over crowding a GTD program like Things. I may not need both, but I am more productive using them together. One more thing: the developer is great. He seems to be genuinely interested in user input, and her responds to queries and suggestions quickly and thoroughly.

Solid app, regularly updated. Bought this a few months ago and am slowly migrating my Todoist tasks to it.

This is a great app for getting my tasks down and then organising them. Uses markdown as well as the built-in Reminders and Calendar across Mac and iOS

It is an incredibly useful, pleasant-to-use app. With NotePlan, everything I need to focus on is in a single, straight forward, minimal, and clean UI. I love how you can tag notes right in my notes. There is no need to fiddle with a convoluted interface. I can simply spell out whatever is in my mind, use Markdown to format and organize as I type, and everything is all good to go. Unlike other apps, there is absolutely NO data lock-in with NotePlan. It saves everything in human-readable plain text files. I can access my data without having to rely on NotePlan app or its export feature. Many people give an app a pass by merely having an export function. I don't, because there is no guarantee that it will always work, especially with thousands of entries in the future. With NotePlan, my data is genuinely mine by default. I've been so sick and tired of other apps trying to lock me into their platform. NotePlan is a breath of fresh air to me. I wish more developers cared about avoiding vendor lock-in issues. Highly recommended.

This has been such a wonderful discovery. I enjoy being able to mix notes, to-dos, links, etc. in the same area just for the day. The program keeps getting better.

I would have to say this is the best Task Manager app I’ve ever used (and yes I said the same thing about Things when it was still shiny and new after the upgrade to version 3). This works like a combination of TaskPaper (outline your tasks in plain text) and Things (get to see your Calendar events and todos in the same space as well as having a dedicated page for Today). I’ve only been using it for a few days but have already bought the iOS app and see myself buying the Mac app once the demo is over.
